Taste the moorish heritage

I think one intriguing part of Andalusia is the moorish heritage, and Al Yamal was recommended to us as the best Arabic restaurant in town. The food is impeccable and it was great atmosphere. Well worth checking out!

After many days with fusion tapas, we wanted to try out something ells . After checking TA, this cozy and small restaurant did not disappoint us. Welcoming staff with good explanation of the menu. We went for his recommendations and are now both really full and happy. The hummus was so delicious but the best surprise was the mixed cous... More

Service was excellent- the server brought us a little of everything. It was all delicious, right down to the sweet mint tea at the end of the meal. A pricier option than tapas bars, but well worth it!

This is a different dining experience after lots of tapas everyday! It is simple Moroccan type food served by friendly staff. It is very expensive compared to other restaurants .

The service was very warm and friendly. The red wine from Tunis was good and every dish was wonderfully prepared. The hummus was creamy, the chicken tagine had many flavours, the lamb Al-Kasbur was succulent, and the Keftas were flavourful and came with fresh salad.

We wanted to eat something different than Spanish food and therefore chose Al-Jamal. Service was very friendly, suggested a nice menue sampling many different dishes. All dishes were explained very well. Would visit this again when next time in Malaga.

Usually I eat the local food when abroad but I had read about Al Jamal and wanted to try it as I love Morocco and Moroccan food. I was not disappointed! The restaurant is small, cosy and the owner is welcoming. The menu is small and limited but this usually means that the chef knows how to cook the offerings... More

Came here with my family on the basis of reviews I read and we were really not disappointed. The chicken tagine was really tender and delicious. The couscous was aromatic and tasty. We had mint tea with orange blossom essence which together with the pastries were a lovely end to a very nice meal. Service was very good and the... More

When entering we found we were the only diners on this lunch time but decided to stay and give it a try. Ordered salad which was small and nothing special, chicken tagine was next this was small with two pieces of drumsticks, we... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Al-yamal for a late lunch. The atmosphere is nice and cozy and the food was really nice prepared. The food is a welcoming break to the usual "fried fish" in the region. Really worth a visit if you want to try something different. It might be a good idea to book a table since... More
